This bar chain is giving away free Aperol Spritz nationwide

There’s no denying that an Aperol Spritz is the taste of summer. The Italian aperitif not only looks the part, but it’s everything you want from a tipple on a hot summer’s day – light, refreshing and simply delicious. And this year, it celebrates its 100th anniversary.

To mark the occasion, All Bar One is offering customers a complimentary glass of Aperol Spritz in their bars across the country. Hurrah!

It’s not every day that a classic cocktail celebrates a century of existence. So the popular bar chain has decided that it is a moment to share with the entire nation, and what better way to do than then giving out free drinks?

All you have to do to claim yours is register your name and email online. You will then receive a unique code to show to the bartender. Then simply head down to your local All Bar One during ‘aperitivo hour’ – the golden hours between 5pm and 8pm in Italy, where an Aperol Spritz is typically enjoyed alongside light aperitivo bites, and claim your complimentary cocktail.

Of course, all good things must come to an end so the offer is only running on the 10th, 11th and 12th July, so make sure to make a note in your diaries for next week.

‘We as Italians are well known for our spontaneous and sociable spirit, so we want to invite everyone across the U.K. to embrace this too – what better occasion to do this than our 100th birthday?’ says Paolo Tonellotto, bartender and brand ambassador at Aperol. ‘Whether you are already a big Aperol Spritz fan, or trying the secret 100-year-old recipe for the first time, there is no better time to grab your friends and head to an All Bar One to enjoy an Aperol Spritz on us.’

And on that note, Salute!
